This lesson is a continuation of lesson #7672 - Harmonized Scale Forms - Part Two.

The same fingerings are used each time, with some modifications, due to the closeness of consecutive fret spacing.

Generally the same fingering patterns are used a number of times before adding on one in the lower register and subtacting one in the higher register.

Diatonic primary chords were used I, IV, V, V7, and vii in each scale.

The fingerings on this lesson are the same as in lesson #7611. The only difference is that a different set of strings are used, plus that name of the chord is different, being in a different key.

It is assumed that in the prior lessons the fingering changes were worked out smoothly. If not, then there might be a problem on what the fingers need to do to work smoothly.

Guide fingers are very important. When the same finger is used again, let it stay on the string when shifting to the next position.

Avoid forcing the strings to sound loudly. Strings 3, 4, 5 should be set in motion together, as if one soiund was being made. If using the pick, have the pick stop against the 2nd string. Make all 3 strings have a clean sound.

If your having trouble with playing one chord after the other, try this. Play the first chord and then the second chord. Back and forth. When those two chords are working good, add in the third. Change back and forth. Keep adding on the chords as you start to get this down. Memorize the patterns.

If any page is too difficult, return to the prior lesson and follow the diagrams at a slower pace. When that is under control, return to this lesson.
